The KNOXVILLE NEWS-SENTINEL reports freshman wide receiver Nu’Keese Richardson and defensive back Mike Edwards have been “permanently dismissed” from the Tennessee football team by Coach Lane Kiffin.
(Urban Meyer will shed no tears about Nu’Keese’s demise)
Our student-athletes must be responsible members of society, and this type of conduct will not be tolerated. We want a positive culture for our student-athletes that allows them to succeed in the classroom, on the field, and in life after college. My hope is that these two young men will learn from their terrible decision. Clearly, their actions have no place in our program.
The third player allegedly involved in the robbert attempt last week, Janzen Jackson, “will continue to not be allowed to participate in team activities while Kiffin awaits additional information.”
So what’s the early verdict on Kiffin’s call?
